Momma Kat’s Hope Chest Is Complete—Now She Needs Her Home


Finally Momma Kat’s Hope Chest is filled! The generosity of fellow bloggers, cat brands and pet product suppliers was overwhelming. Several even made sure to include items for Momma Kat’s five kittens as well.

As you can imagine, Momma Kat’s rescue is dependent on partnerships between my local municipal shelter, Contra Costa Animal Services and bay area transfer partners. Please notice I did not say  “Momma Kat’s rescue was dependent…”. I said “…is dependent…” because she will not be truly “rescued” until she has her own loving permanent guardians to care for her.

I want to ask my readers to consider finding some green papers to help the two primary partners who collaborated to bring about the early stages of her rescue. And if you don’t have any green papers or silver coins to share then please, share these two organizations who are responsible for the fact that Momma Kat is alive and well today.

First, Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS) is my county’s shelter. Their field services Officer John responded to the call from the public about finding Momma Kat badly injured in their front yard.  Please consider donating to CCAS’ Animal Benefit Fund to help other animals who without CCAS would never be alive and able to find caring homes.

Next, please think about making a donation to Bright Haven who is a transfer partner with CCAS. Bright Haven stepped up and took on Momma Kat and her five kittens knowing that Momma Kat required serious surgery. You can make a donation here to help other animals just like Momma Kat.

Next up, the contents of Momma Kat’s Hope Chest! Please be sure to visit their websites to learn more about each contributor.

Door Buddy

Mom L learned about Door Buddy at the 2016 Blog Paws Conference. I decided that Momma Kat ought to have one of these just in case her new family has a woofie or small child. And Door Buddy donated not one but two!


Classy Pet Food Bowls

The founder decide to not only provide Momma Kat with a water bowl and a food bowl, but also to provide each kitten with their own food bowl too! And she made sure the girl kittens have pink and the boys have blue!!

Mom L asked the President of DH&A, a marketing and public relations company, if any of their cat brand clients might be willing to donate to Momma Kat’s Hope Chest. Next thing I knew I was pawing at the door for Mom L to bring in this heavy package. Thank you to Miss Jo and her clients for their generosity!

    Thank you for putting this together for Momma Kat, she deserves a wonderful home and I hope she gets it in time for the holidays. XO

    WOW! Savannah, you and your mom have done so much to help Momma Kat! And how generous of all of these sponsors to donate these items. We are amazed. Sharing for sure!!!

    • Please do. I know she is located north of San Francisco Bay, but hopefully lots of my pals have followers on FB and Twitter, even IG who know someone who knows someone who lives out here and has an open heart and home for MK. She is extremely shy. Her adoption will be difficult as we already are learning. But I am never giving up on helping her

  9. We will share daily for this lady cat. Linda and Savvy you have worked miracles and she is now prepared to move to a loving home and be loved. She arrives like a Princess with her caravan of wonderful gifts. Good Luck Wonderful Lady!

    • Sadly Silver, Harvey and Miranda, MK is exceptionally shy as we have just learned. More so than we knew. She also has constantly dilated pupils due to her head injury. It causes her no problems but humans may be put off by that look of always being startled or scared. She is a very special soul and will need a particular home filled with patient and calm humans.

  10. WE know she will Love, Love the Sleepypod mobile pet bed. Scylla reports that ours is very cozy and helps her feel safe when traveling. Paws crossed Mom cat finds a home soon and that the kittens do too. We are sharing sharing sharing.

  11. That is most wonderful and we will be back later to share everywhere we can.

  12. Whoa! You did good. Now we just need to find the final piece. I wish I could win that for you too. Did the rest of the stuff from PetLinks go into the Hope chest too? She’s so pretty so I don’t understand why she doesn’t have suitors.

    • Yes we received all the items but now Mom L can’t find the two small items. MK is very lovely we think but now we know how severely shy she really is. We will not give up, I have made her my Paw It Forward Project and I will not leave her until she has the special home she needs to become her REAL SELF

  13. Bless her, she is as much an inspiration for her devotion to he kittens, as are all those that have pulled together to help save her, to put together this fabulous chest, and to find her a new home. purrs ERin

  14. Wow wee!!! This is an AMAZING hope chest and I certainly hope it helps Momma Kat find that perfect forever home! Savvy, you and your mom are just plain awesome.

  15. Toe-tallee amazin effort on Lady El’ss part to make such an amazin HOPE CHEST!!!
    Momma Kat iss so purrty; wee wunder why no one had fallen fur her yet?????
    Sendin purrayerss fur Momma an her kittss to find furever homes soon….
    ***nose kissesss*** Dhartha Henry xxxx

    • Oh Dharth, MK is extremely shy, even more so than we knew. We just learned she seldom comes out from UTB when the foster brings her food. She eats when he leaves. So if anyone comes to visit her, she is nowhere to be seen. We need a very special place and person for her and she deserves it.

  16. How amazing that so many came together to help Momma Kat. Now let’s find her a home!

  17. What a wonderful hope chest for Momma and her babies….now they need their FOREVER…..we do hope it happens soon. It would be wonderful if their Christmas present this year was a HOME!

    Love, Sammy

    • We would be tickled Sammy if MK had a home by the holidays. But, we learned just Sunday that she is even more shy than we thought. She has not been socialized very well in foster care as the human has so many kitties to care for. MK will need a very quiet and patient human to be hers forever.

  18. WOW!! That is so amazing how many different brands and others came together for this! I really hope Momma Kat finds a home soon. Sorry my human has been dropping the ball on this, but her life is in total chaos right now.

  19. Shared on our FB page 🙂

  20. wow that is wonderful cat-equipment! I hope together we can find a home for mama cat… maybe she finds the same great home like Leo once… I will share :o)

    • Yes it would wonderful if MK can find a loving home as Cuzin’ Leo. However, Cuzin’ Leo is having some challenges because Dad Dave has been unwell for almost two years now and Cuzin’ Leo may not be getting enough care. Mom L and Dad P are on top of it, never fear.
